Hello everyone! I'm not necessarily new to LR (joined the site in 2012) but this my first post soooo...hello.

Bought my '01 Lightning about 3 and a half years ago to have something fast as a daily that I could also haul my gixxer around in and immediately had the bearings in my rear diff go out. Thanks a bunch, guy who owned it before me. Anyways, that lead my straight in to the loving of arms of LR and I've been poking around on this site ever since, soaking up knowledge and reading all the how-to's, trying to figure out how to make my baby go faster, the safe way. LR is a plethora of information that's easy to find and understand so I've never needed to post any questions or give my .02...........until now I suppose. So hello to everyone.

I'm in the Navy, stationed in Ventura CA. Just transitioned here from Texas. Trying to find a good shop. I hear great things about Swanson Performance so that will be my first stop once the build starts (if such a thing ever happens...$$$)

The ride CURRENTLY is as follows: '01 L, Longtubes, catless mids, bassani catback, JLP intake, and a Custom tune from Speedtek in Fort Worth, TX that took me to 382/440. She's a pretty basic B***h....

Hope to meet some of you in the LA/Ventura area.

Thanks! I've used your site quite a bit so im sure ill be back again. If you look at one of those pics you can see the crappy lower grille insert that used to be on it. Thanks to LMR she has now been returned to stock...and you can also see what your L would look like with Nitto Mud Grapplers haha
